Re: [school-discuss] student created "to do list" for Moodle or simply web-based

The worst thing about learning English is its spelling. http://justpaste.it/spellingenglish 
To make reading English simple truespel phonetics follows the alphabetic principle - one spelling per sound.  This means that learning how to spell each of 40 sounds means that once you learn each sound you can write and read any word you hear in US English phonetically.  Since truespel is based on phonics it looks a lot like traditional spelling.  The free converter at http://truespel.com/en shows pronunciation and you can practice at home.  See much important phonetic information for common core to ELLs at http://bit.ly/1VXQlEi .
Bottom line is that truespel boils down writing and reading to its simplest form.  Perhaps this will help dyslexics.  At least it will show phonemic awareness and pronunciation in a form that's easy enough for k-1.
Truespel takes less than an hour to learn.  http://justpaste.it/course2  Let me know how it goes

I do home-schooing, also. You want to do computer-related stuff, and/or
Android/iPad type stuff?

One possible way might be to use Google sites + Google documents (I have
a survey on my web site, please see below, and I can go into further
detail on how to do what you want to do to-do lists.) There are lots of
to-do list apps in the Google store.

You could also just use the Google calendar, just make sure to tick the
private box for each item, if you want to keep things private.
